BLACK ROSE

BLACK ROSE believes that today's live music has lost much of its spontaneity and soul.  Never succumbing to the current fixation with the use of backing tracks, what you get at a BLACK ROSE appearance is nothing but pure, unadulterated live rock and roll.  A live BLACK ROSE show is much like that feeling you get while cruising down the highway with your radio blasting out your favorite classic rock and roll music.  The band encourages letting your inner-rock & roller out to run free at every show, bringing back that raw rock experience that most cover bands today seem to avoid.  The BLACK ROSE experience is full of the great rock and roll classics that makes for a fun night out, so we look forward to seeing all of you rockers at the next show.

What sets Tracey apart from other singers is her unique soulful & bluesy voice and ability to always make a connection with her audience.  Tracey Lee was born in Ohio but grew up in Southern California.  Although she loves all kinds of music, Tracey is definitely a classic rock girl. From a young age, her deep love of music led to a passion for singing.  Forming her first band, Wild Horses (later 'Black Thorn'), in 2011.  Tracey began playing regular gigs all over the central California area.   Recently relocating to the Reno area, Tracey discovered the perfect band mates in Scott & Johnny and 'Black Rose' was born.

Johnny Smoke - Guitar, Vocals

Johnny, born and raised in the Bay area, was always into the electric blues guitar sound.  Deciding that he too wanted to become a six-string blues master, John taught himself how to play by listening to his idols and honing his craft by sharing a stage with well-known area bands  Skychurch and Whiskey Train, as well as national acts such as Pat Travers.  With a distinct sound that reflects his love of guitarists such as Robin Trower and Jimi Hendrix, John uses only Fender Stratocaster guitars and Marshall amplification to get there.

Scott White - Bass, Vocals

Since his first stage performance at the age of 6, Scott has always felt right at home on a stage.  It was only natural that this would lead him to pick up a guitar and start performing at a young age.  After playing his first paid band gig at 14 and first weekly club gigs at 16, he has never looked back.  Over the years that followed, he has had the privilege of sharing a stage with such well-known bands as .38 Special, Molly Hatchet, Blackfoot, Great White, Marshall Tucker Band and Atlanta Rhythm Section.
